Mandatory Phase 2 water restrictions limiting landscape watering for Highland Village residents went into effect today.
Phase 2 prohibits residential and commercial landscape watering on Monday’s and Friday’s and restricts watering the rest of the days of the week between 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.
Wasteful water runoff is prohibited, which includes hosing down pavement or rinsing off cars. Groundwater well owners and residents that draw water from the lake are required to post a sign showing well water or lake water is in use.
Residents violating the water restrictions could be fined up to $500.
The city is requesting that all residents reduce their landscape water consumption by 50 percent.
Phase 2 was triggered automatically by ordinance when the city water supply consumption reached greater than 80 percent for three consecutive days.
